and former dallas federal reserve vice president, joining me now in a fox business exclusive from reno nevada. gerry, an f? i understand how you feel about this especially because you talked once and you say this is an artificial rebound that they have engineered. let's use that word. and yet i would say that a lot of smart people have given ben bernanke a thumbs up in many cases, for example, lou dobbs who feels they did what they had to do. i was talking to some russians who are big in business overseas, they said central bank saved us. but why do you feel they deserve an f grade? does that go for all 13 semesters that we have passed over the past several years? >> well, i don't know if i said an f. but look, they did the right thing in 08. you know, back in the lehman failure and so on. they provided liquidity to the market. but now what they are doing is making whole asset classes and segments of the economy dependent on more stimulus. and the problem is it's going to take more and more stimulus to run an economy on fumes, basically. now, of course there are underlying factors, normal mar
